A large group of us went for Christmas lunch Dec 14 ( ive been meaning to write review for ages !) We ordered in advance and paid a small deposit. The welcome and service was excellent and the food was delicious too. I will definitely eat here again and have no hesitation in recommending.

Came across the restaurant whilst strolling around the fine city of York. Sat outside in the courtyard and enjoyed a lovely lunch. Really lovely food, friendly and attentive staff and a nice spot away from the crowded waterfront areas. Fully recommended - thanks!

We went there for a late lunch around 2pm on a saturday. The service was great with very friendly waitresses. My friend had the burger which was HUGE. I tried it and although the meat was a bit overdone to our liking it was still very good. I had the chicken salad which was ok. It had lots of different... More

Saw the reviews of this place and a few others in York and decided to try this one. Was not disappointed. Had a good early bird deal with three courses for about £19. Food was good quality and service was very good. Food was also plentiful so worth a trip for good food at a reasonable price.

York is a vibrant city full of great places to eat, it has everything from the cheap sandwich shops to 5 star restaurants, we have always looked for the small privately owned establishments when we visit as we feel they give the best service and the food is usually the best (no boil in the bag rubbish)!.
